On Hot Gay Statues: Philadelphia Apparently Not Unfamiliar with the Concept

24Mar08

In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of.

Today we present a submission from Seth Tisue, who sends in an entry from the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia.

Let’s check it out, shall we?

Hot or not…? Are you kidding!!? This is seriously gay and smokin’ hot. Nicely done, Philadelphia! You have not been tentative in your first entry on the boards.

Thanks for the submission, Seth. We like this pic because it raises many questions that extend beyond the implicit gayness and hotness of the sculpture. In short: we consider it for a second and immediately want to know more.

We encourage everyone to check out Seth’s cool web site here (http://tisue.net), but be forewarned: the first page features a photograph of one of Louise Bourgeois’ awesomely creepy (and ginormous) spider sculptures, which is guaranteed to give you nightmares for weeks!

For those in other cities, we await your submissions. There’s still plenty o’ time in the contest — it’s longer than the Democratic primaries (LOL!!!) — to scour your local venues for the best in hot gay statuary.

    Speaking of Louise Bourgeois, at least an honorable mention should go to her work n Seattle’s Olympic Sculpture Park. A gay Seattle man died and left a sackful of cash for a representational male sculpture in Seattle, the city pitched the task to Seattle Art Museum, and voila! a Bourgeois piece of a father and son separated by fountains was installed.

    Once the design was announced the wingnuts went into predictable AM overdrive over its pervyness and potential to corrupt youth. The best overreaction was the Am talk show host who revealed that the sculptor must be a Marxist South American type. Luis Bourgeois, you know.

  2. Thanks Waldo. Dan Savage actually posted a link to the LB sculpture on Slog when he wrote about our contest, but I was kind of hoping that someone else would send in a better pic — in fact, I’m still hoping: there’s lots of time! I also wasn’t sure if you could see it without paying an admission fee; not that I wouldn’t still be interested in a pic, but technically we’re looking for at least quasi-public art that can be viewed gratis.

    The Sculpture Park is open free 365 a year. For another, if non-sexy, view of the Bourgeois piece (click on the interactive tour here: http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/visit/OSP/#

    What makes this even funnier is that it looks like the J-Man might be involved, reminiscent of this hilarious piece of art(I tried to find a larger one, but YOU try google image searching “jesus+gay”): http://a182.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/36/m_8222939e642327e9492c58421b3693e5.jpg

  5. Thanks Genghis–that link is incredible!!! I may have to post that in “special edition” spin-off. Do you know anything about it?
